The MIT School of Engineering seeks an outstanding individual for a tenure-track position in the
area of Computational Engineering at the assistant or untenured associate professor level. In
exceptional circumstances more senior candidates will be considered. The position shall be
associated with the “home” engineering department most suitable for the selected candidate.
Applicants must have earned a doctorate by the beginning of the appointment period in an
appropriate field of engineering or mathematics or a related field; must have demonstrated the
ability to carry out outstanding research; and must have shown strong promise for exceptional
teaching. All areas of computational engineering are of interest. Emphasis is on the development
of new computational methodology with strong demonstrated relevance to important engineering
disciplines and problems.
Faculty duties will include teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, research, and
supervision of student research. The applicant is expected to teach graduate computational
engineering material in the School of Engineering, and to teach undergraduate core disciplinary
material in the designated home engineering department. Interested applicants should submit
application materials — curriculum vita, names and addresses of three or more references, no
more than three publications, and a three-page statement of teaching and research interests —
electronically at https://school-ofengineering-faculty-search.mit.edu/. The teaching and
research interests should include the identification of at least one MIT engineering department
which would be appropriate as a home department. We request that each candidate arrange for
reference letters to be uploaded electronically.
All applications received by March 1, 2009, shall receive full consideration. MIT is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
